Fire of Holy Spirit paints a Lowestoft church red

It was a case of painting the church red at Our Lady Star of the Sea in Lowestoft on Pentecost Sunday, May 15.

The church has recently started a tradition of everyone wearing something red for Pentecost, to signify the coming of the fire of the Holy Spirit, according to Deacon Revd Stephen Pomeroy.

"St Mary’s school singers and the First Communion class came together to celebrate Pentecost with prayers in six different languages, sharing the gifts of the Spirit and a celebratory shared lunch with traditional foods from around the world.

"There were red balloons and, of course, a specially-made Pentecost cake was enjoyed by everyone."
